Proteomic approaches to characterize biochemistry of fresh beef color


Color of retail fresh beef is the most important quality influencing the consumers' purchase decisions at the point of sale. Discolored fresh beef cuts are either discarded or converted to low-value products, before the microbial quality is compromised, resulting in huge economic loss to meat industry. The interinfluential interactions between myoglobin, small biomolecules, proteome, and cellular components in postmortem skeletal muscles govern the color stability of fresh beef. This review examines the novel applications of high-throughput tools in mass spectrometry and proteomics to elucidate the fundamental basis of these interactions and to explain the underpinning mechanisms of fresh beef color. Advanced proteomic research indicates that a multitude of factors endogenous to skeletal muscles critically influence the biochemistry of myoglobin and color stability in fresh beef. Additionally, this review highlights the potential of muscle proteome components and myoglobin modifications as novel biomarkers for fresh beef color.
